  Submit your comments by Nov. 13th ?
Blurb in the Delaware County News about the selectively publicized airspace meeting held by John Mica in Ridley Twp. on Oct. 18th.... "Although Mica ended the hearing by promising to look at any written comments and testimony submitted before Nov. 13, many residents were angry over the tone of the meeting, and felt that their concerns were likely to go unheeded. " Funny, instructions directing pepole how to submit comments was missing from this article.

The real question DE, NJ, PA residents and their politicians should be asking is why hasn't the FAA and PHL management included Allentown (ABE) as a reliever solution to the "air travel crisis" that is fueling the expansion @ PHL? DVRPC and NY/NJ Port Authority have identified ABE and ACY as possible relievers for it's three airports ; JFK, LGA, EWR. Why hasn't PHL and the FAA?

Vote your conscience on November 7th,
